Preview of Deluxe Willow and Kendra figures and Willow bust in Action-Figure.com's interview with Diamond Select's Chuck Terceira prior to the San Diego Comic Con.

Great likeness on the six-inch Willow. Kendra's okay.

The more of these supporring characters we get from way back, the weirder it is to me that they won't put out a Charles Gunn figure. Was there ever a good explanation about that?
I love the floating pencils and the pez-witch! :)
I think the Willow bust looks quite good, but the likeness is not as well done as the sculpting of the base etc.

As to the action figures, well I very much like the look of the Willow, but the Kendra looks a little weird.

Did she ever wear an outfit like that on the show. It looks very 'Faithy' to me.
Nike likenesses all round. The Willow bust looks a tiny bit "off" but that's just me being very picky. Compared to some of the likenesses I've seen in the past, these are all very impressive. And with "You're Welcome" Cordelia, could these figures be ushering a new age of Jossverse figures which actually look like the characters? There have been a few throughout the years which have been great, and the busts have always been good, but good figures used to be few and far between.
It's a new trend - the forthcoming wave of Faith and Giles figures mostly look like Faith and Giles. I believe they got Gentle Giant to sculpt them, which didn't hurt.

Gunn is a question of marketing, apparently, but people keep asking, and I would think they'll get to him eventually.

It's from the Halloween episode and Willow eventually chicken outs in wearing that costume and places a sheet over her head to go as a ghost. Which saves the Scoobie gang later on, when people turn into their costumes and Willow becomes a real ghost.
I think Sue was referring to Kendras outfit, not Willows.

They've never said they are not making one. I suspect there will be one right around the corner soon. And the Angel license is seperate from the Buffy one, so a production of Kendra won't affect a Gunn.
What are the chances of Buffyverse Kubricks happening? I would love to see it happening.
Since Buffyverse Palz exist, I'd assume not good as they fill a similar niche.
